I didn't vote, (I'm an O+ secretor/Gatherer), but I can tell you that when I was growing up in South Africa, we lived in a house with no air conditioning as did everyone else. In the summertime, we would sleep with our windows open. My sister and I shared a room. She is also an O (don't know whether positive or negative, her secretor status, etc.) I would wake up with maybe one or two mosquito bites, while she was just covered in bites. Guess she is "sweeter" than I am

Youch! BeckyB glad you didn't get bitten much.  Sounds a bit dangerous - isn't there malaria and other diseases round those parts?

Yes, Symbi...a person can easily contract malaria in Africa...usually from the Tsetse fly,though.
We loved living there in the 50's and 60's. : )

Mosquitoes love me... One time I was in the woods in Northern Sweden. I got swarmed and covered by fat black mosquitoes. I ended up with 140+ bites!  

Nowadays I still get mosquito bites but it seems the intensity is much less! Possibly it helps with the reduction of sweet food and more vitamin B.  

One curious thing is that my husband, an A nonnie, gets much fewer mosquito bites than I do. Sometimes when we are sitting outdoors and he's had a beer or two, he does not get bitten at all. I wonder if the Vitamin B in beer is actually effective against critters  .

Cool Balletomaine and Amazone, you don't have to vote and you win unblemished not itchy skin and bonus less diseases!  

Probably true Balletomaine about vitamin B I noticed if I eat lots of yeast spread - maybe they don't like the smell of all that vitamin B.  Beer, eh, so that's why they drink lots of it.

Thank you for this inspirational thread and poll! I linked it to my blog. Here in Finland there are many mosquitos this summer, when I go to forest to get spring water I have to be well dressed. But they don't bother me as badly as some other people when in company outside the house. Maybe still I should check "O secretor" in this poll but not yet

Oh yes, yesterday there were some mosquitos sucking me - although there were other people in the same room, too. Now I'll check the prefering

I was just reading recently (where??   ) that mosquitoes, and other insects, are drawn to certain colors.  Can't remember which ones mosquitoes prefer, but that makes sense.  Maybe somebody who is interested could google that and find out for future reference.  I haven't been bitten this year yet, but I used somebody's deet or whatever it was at the only outdoor event I've been to so far this summer.  Or else I wore a color they didn't like.

Mosquitos like blood!  If they were so picky about blood types, they would have died out by now!

True, but that doesn't explain why in a group of people some will be bitten, while others will be left alone.  It does seem that they have a preference.

My sister is either A or B and gets mauled by them all the time.  I'm A and don't seem to attract them in large amounts, but they will land on me.  Her bites get very large and red.  I would think they would like O the most if O actually flows better than others.  They would like A the least.  

If there are O's reading this that do not get pounded and assulted or A's that get bombarded when they go out in the summer humidity, then its not the supposed thickness of the blood.  Maybe different blood types give off different signatures that mosquitos read to find prey.

They don't like Off though!!

Maybe thinner skin allows more to penetrate and get to your blood also.

Mosquitos love me. They even attacked me when I used to drink beer. I get big painful red bumps. They have always loved me.

I don't think bloodtype has anything to do with it. It's more what's in the blood. People with a lot of Vitamin B seem to get stuck/stung ( a lot less then people without.

I didn't take the poll, because I apparently stink to a skeeter.  One of my medications sends them away.  Heard it when I was younger, then again as I got older and read it in an article a few years back.  Have lived and visited many cities, and have had my share of seeing them.  I do get bit once in a while, guess those are the real hungry ones.

Yes, until I started following SWAMI very closely I was and have always been a mosquito magnate.  However, I've notice that when I control my carbs and sugar limits, I'm much less bothered by them.

I've voted yes, (hope that's ok) although I don't know what bites me, but I get bitten every summer, I have bites all over me now.  My dad is the same (I suspect he is an O too) .  We also both get cold sores.

However my husband (B secretor) never gets bitten (nor cold sores)

Thanks for the correction, ABJoe.  It's good to be able to laugh at myself.
